17/11/2010 Production Log

The last couple of weeks have been very important within everyones groups we have or going to present our pitch presentations to the whole class, Mike and Kelly. Our group went up in front of everyone last Friday and it went very well.

In peparation for the pitch we had Joe making the powerpoint (which looked amazing) and me and Jacob getting together some last final concepts to show everyone. Will also I think pulled out the stops to get together some brilliant music and sound effect concepts, which the whole group thinks that they really suit the game.

Last week a few days before the pitch in front of Kelly I came up with some designs of Boob the alien character in our game. Me and Cameron have discussed the character design and we have made some changes to the character that I'll go back do.

Back to the pitch. On my behalf of the whole thing I thought I did better than I expected than how I was going to do. I was a bit nervous. But I feel I could of said so much more, even when our pitch altogether took up to over 30 minutes. Now we need to get ready for the huge final pitch in the coming weeks.

Production log 06/11/2010

This week during the pre-production of the video game concept has been good with a lot of new features and background added to the mix.

On Monday Cameron came with the idea of Aliens creating the virus wanting to attack the internet, which I loved and enjoyed hearing about. It also added a lot of comic relief to the game which we wanted the game to have at the start of the idea.

Also just moments before typing this I was sent a link to a piece of CAD work Jacob did for the character Seth. The week before I had drawn a full body drawing of Seth and the other day handed it to Jacob so he could do some magic to it and develop a brilliant CAD image of Seth. First impressions were that I loved it and he followed my brief concept to a tee.

So the week has gone well and we are getting closer to the pitch. I have been jotting down notes for what to say in the pitch and hopefully will be able to see the power point Joe has created for the group to pitch in the coming week.
